European Art Galleries

The collection galleries on the Zimmerli's lower level were refurbished and reinstalled in 2011, featuring selections from the Zimmerli's collection of Old Master paintings and a more extensive presentation of its nineteenth-century French holdings that focus on the museum's strength in portraits and caricatures, graphic arts, Japonisme, and works related to the popular culture of fin-de-siècle Paris. Several of the museum's signature works, including two important Italian Renaissance paintings, 36 sculptural caricatures comprising Honoré Daumier's Celebrities of the Juste Milieu, and a puppet theater were cleaned and conserved for the new installation. One section of the galleries features changing selections from the collection, primarily from the museum's holdings of nineteenth-century French prints and drawings. 

The renovations for the galleries for European art, including a new state-of-the-art climate control system, is funded by Rutgers University. The conservation and presentation of the objects, is supported by the Estate of Victoria J. Mastrobuono.
